|Comparison between the InvisiHead and wedge-wire
InvisiHead is robust, heavy duty structure that has proved to be more
stable and cost effective. It
is a well engineered proactive intake system which actively addresses
and environmental requirements compared to the highly reactive
screen intake head systems. The overall performance and availability of
the Elmosa Seawater
Intake System is higher than any other system operating in the seawater
industry. It is available 100% of the time under all operating
conditions and requires no maintenance for its lifetime. The system
entirely utilizes natural process in its entire
operation from the start to the end – from the point where the first
molecule at the offshore end of the system is gently drawn into the
and smoothly guided through all the way to the pump intake at the
NatSep intake basin.
contrast, the wedge-wire screen intake head employs
several reactive layers of measures needed to keep it in operation.
Wedge-wire screens are not a dedicated seawater intake head system like
the InvisiHead but modified well screens. They have to be supported by
a costly clean up system to convert them into operational seawater
heads. Backwash and air bursting are essential elements to keep them in
operation while the InvisiHead system requires none of that to remain
in full operation providing 100% of the design capacity at all times
for over 50 years.

The InvisiHead is simply a Nature's product. We in American Eco Systems are proud to be the
inventors of such an environmental-friendly robust natural system.
